Sales tax will be charged on orders shipping to the New York State. For pre-ordered products, the sales tax will be charged at such time as the product is ready for shipment. No other tax or import duty will be applied to orders shipped within the US.

All international orders are shipped on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) bases, meaning your order may be subject to local taxes and/or import duties, which are levied by your local customs authority. Product prices are displayed exclusive of all taxes and duties. We are unable to calculate the exact amount of duties and taxes your order will incur, as these charges are imposed directly by the Ship To country.

Duties and customs tariffs are set by the local government and determined based on a combination of the country of origin/manufacturing of the goods purchased, and the classification of that merchandise in accordance with a harmonized system adopted and used by the local government. The amount of applicable duty, tariffs and taxes will vary based on the product ordered and the specific rates set by the local government.
